Frequently Asked Questions

SEH (the engineer for the infrastructure improvement project) has provided the City of Silver Lake with an example underground view rendering (available by clicking HERE) of a completely reconstructed street. Please note that the project scope is to be restricted within the City Right-of-Way. Private water and sanitary services will be replaced to the property line and will be connected to the existing services. However, the services from the property line to the house will not be included in the project scope. Any questions regarding the rendering may be directed to Sam Fink with SEH at
